“If the light won’t come to them, they go to the light.”
~ Oprah Winfrey, narrator of “Plants” ~
Today I watched “Plants” narrated by Oprah Winfrey, which was rebroadcast this morning on Super Soul Sunday produced by Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). “Plants” is an episode from the BBC Series titled Life, which was originally released on BBC in 2009.
I am so thankful I pressed past the chatter of my internal “go back to bed” saboteur (read below) and listened to the Whisper that called me to rise, shine and tune in. It was a divine opportunity to say YES to Spirit and to follow the intuitive pull that led me to this Wisdom in the Whisper™ lesson.
Super Soul Sunday has become an integral part of my Sunday morning spiritual ritual. And this morning I determined not to sleep through the first hour as I had for the last couple of weeks (it airs for the first time at 8 AM eastern and repeats at 1 PM).
At first, admittedly, I was disappointed there wasn’t a new episode. And right behind disappointment was the voice of my internal sleepyhead who shamelessly tried to convince me to go back to bed. “Clearly,” she suggested “you got it the first time it aired. Whattaya need to watch it again for??”
I questioned the thought and had one of those “hmmm, that doesn’t sound right …” moments. And after all, I was already awake, open and centered through meditation. I’d already gone through the great effort of making coffee (2 cups worth!), cutting up an entire honey crisp apple and spooning up some pricey organic peanut butter to go with it. So I politely excused my naysayer and chose the initial leading; the one that said wake up, watch, reflect, tweet (via @ByTheSpirit and @WisdomWhispers) and write. And I am so glad I did!
What I learned? Plants are our greatest visible spiritual teachers on this planet.
